Okat is the solo project of award-winning Arizona musician Tyler Griffin. Drawing inspiration from minimalism, ambient, and drone, Okat focuses on dynamic melodies juxtaposed against drowning, tonal climaxes, breaking through genre labels to build music that is equally warm and yet somehow chilling.

Up to date [ Okat ] has released two titles [ Driftwoods ] that came out August 2011 and the most recent [ Sable ] which came out June [ 2012 ]. Both releases are exceptionally well done based on the quoted tags. Although Driftwoods is more of a mini EP type, 3 tracks with a total duration of 09minutes but you still might want to give both a thorough listen starting with the latest one [ Sable ]. TOTALLY WORTHY.

Review for "I Want to Stand Where the Sun Himself Shakes with Fear" by Voices from Deep Below

Even though the independent rock scene is quite inundated with new acts, there’s always a welcome place for an outfit that changes the formula enough to be consistently interesting and worth taking notice of. The New York-based alternative rock group Voices from Deep Below attempts to do just that, fusing together a variety of styles into a surprisingly coherent sound. Their new record, “I Want to Stand Where the Sun Himself Shakes with Fear”, is a five song album that navigates alt-rock, experimental, and borderline metal and progressive influences all at the same time.
